Recipe Ingredients for Smitten Kitchen Blue Cheese and Scallion Drop Biscuits

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick or 3 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
4 scallions, finely chopped
1 cup buttermilk

Recipe Directions for Smitten Kitchen Blue Cheese and Scallion Drop Biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, then blend in butter with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in blue cheese and scallions. Add buttermilk and stir until just combined.

  2. Drop dough in 12 equal mounds about 2 inches apart onto a buttered large baking sheet, or one lined with parchment paper. Bake in middle of oven until golden, 16 to 20 minutes.

  3. Do ahead: Biscuits are always best the day they are baked. However, if you wish to get a lead on them, you can make them, drop them onto your baking sheet, freeze them until they are firm, and place them in a freezer bag or container until you?re ready to bake them. They can be baked while still frozen (straight from the freezer), you?ll just want to add a few minutes to the baking time.
